Before submitting your work to us, please carefully read the following guidelines:
SEND IDEAS, NOT ARTICLES
We prefer to receive pitches and ideas rather than completed articles. Send us an email first, outlining your proposed topic and providing a brief summary of the main points you plan to cover. If possible, include samples or links to your previous writing. This approach saves both parties time and effort, as we can provide feedback and guidance on the direction we'd like your article to take.

Here's what we're looking for:
Our news section is like a quick skate session: short, impactful, and straight to the point. Whether it's about the latest skateboarding events, industry updates, or exciting new product releases, keep your news articles concise (200 to 300 words maximum) and focus on providing factual information. Begin with the who, what, where, and when, followed by additional details such as how and why. Feel free to add an engaging introduction or some fun anecdotes, as long as you avoid excessive personal opinions. Remember, news should remain neutral, and refrain from speaking negatively about brands or individuals.
